Zlin is situated in the Moravia (the eastern part of Czech Republic) it is quite small city with 75 000 inhabitants, so when you compare it with other cities in Czech Republic or European cities you can just think about “what the hell I can do there and how will my Erasmus looks like?” Lots of things but first watch this video, which will show you the "city of green and red". Why red? because of the characteristic buildings made from red Bricks.
Faculties: Zlin is a small city and the faculties aren't that far from each other, so you can walk or if it's bigger distance, then you can take a trolley-bus. According to your time schedule of your courses you will just go to school, pay attention, take notes, do your work and also have fun with your new classmates, this is the most important part! The examination period is the time when you should study hard therefore you can use our new and modern library (U13) with internet connection, books, copier, and the best part of whole library is hidden in the fourth floor – chill-out zone for students. Come and explore!
Dormitories: We recommend asking for accommodation at our university dormitories during your stay in Zlin. Why? Usually all Erasmus students live there. So there is always the most of fun. The other reason is that the dorms are very close to University as well as to the city centre.
